Brick engravings

If you have walked by the Ray W Howard Library/Media/ Technology Center you may have noticed the engraved columns outside the entrances. Additional engravings are scheduled to take place on Monday, September 22 on columns outside the lower level entrance.  There may be a little dust and noise during this time, but once the job is complete come and check out the new inscriptions.

International orientation a big success

CassieEven though classes for fall quarter don’t start until Sept. 24, hundreds of students and parents arrived on campus this week. The new students, all international, took tests and had informational meetings and workshops to help them prepare for the upcoming school year.

The students were attending the International Student Orientation Program (ISOP). There were students from Saudi Arabia, Japan, Thailand, Russia, Burma and many other countries being welcomed at Shoreline.

More than 300 students and over 50 parents arrived to take part in the Fall ISOP, Shoreline’s largest incoming international student class.

All-Hazard training starts again on Monday

Mark your calendars for this mandatory training occurring in room 9208:

  • Mon Sept. 22 – 11:30-1 p.m.
  • Wed Oct 1 – 9 -10:30 a.m.
  • Tues. Oct 14 – 12 -1:30 p.m.
  • Tues Oct 21 – 9 -10:30 a.m.

More dates may be added here later.

The All-Hazards Training is an excellent overview of what faculty and staff should be prepared for in various emergency situations. The training is 90 minutes long.

This important training is mandatory for all faculty and staff.

Faculty members are not expected to attend trainings that occur outside of the contractual academic calendar. Associate faculty members who attend mandatory training and submit a completed time-sheet to the VPASA’s office will be paid for that time at the contractual rate for non-instructional work, $39 per hour.

There is nothing more important to this effort than a well-trained staff.  Preparation, training and readiness can make all the difference should the college ever be faced with a critical emergency.

Friends and co-workers of Troy Wolf gathered Sept. 18, 2014 on the Shoreline Community College campus to dedicate a granite bench and memorial plaque in his honor.

Wolff, a former English professor at Shoreline, died Sept. 14, 2013 after he and his partner were stabbed in a random attack the previous evening while walking in Seattle’s Pioneer Square area following a Sounders soccer match. His partner survived her injuries. More than 400 people came together on Sunday, Sept. 22, 2013 to celebrate Wolff’s life.

The bench, located along a quiet path in a tree-lined enclave on the north end of campus, is the result of planning and funding by friends and co-workers of Wolff.

The ceremony included comments from Wolff’s mother, read by Dean of Humanities Kathie Hunt who served as emcee. The ceremony also included the lighting of a candle, poetry from Prof. Ernest Johnson and retried Prof. Ed Harkness as well as comments by President Cheryl Roberts, Acting Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs Bob Francis and professors Neal Vasishth and Brooke Zimmers.
